Brad Pitt Talks Pot and Politics — Interesting or Irrelevant?

Brad Pitt made an appearance on Real Time With Bill Maher Friday to chat about his upcoming film Inglourious Basterds. He also touched on a few other topics, like marijuana and his thoughts on politics and religion after jokingly talking about running for mayor of New Orleans last week. So, tell us — do you think his interview is interesting or irrelevant?

The only thing I find insulting and stupid about this are the comments from people who didn't listen to what he was saying before using this opportunity to tear him apart over it. But then, that kind of behavior does fit the stereotype of the views espoused, so it's not exactly a surprise.And the reason they talk so much about pot is because it's Real Time, where Bill Maher talks about pot in every episode.

Interesting. I didn't know Brad Pitt was a non-believer, and it's great to know that such an influential public figure (or at least a figure so regarded in the sadly influential American celebriculture) is talking about the need for a state independent of the influence of religion. Some of the more fundamentalist religions are arguably a strong influence against civil rights (gay rights, gay marriage), and this same influence is a significant motivation in the actions of politicians, and the millions of people who let their religion and ecclesiasts do the thinking and decision making for them (re millions of people who are under the misconception that U.S.A. is a Christian nation--it's not, as stated in article 11 in the Treaty of Tripoli; politicians who begin their state functions with prayer; Texas; W.). The idea that policy should not be influenced by religion is an idea that should not be ignored--religion is not always a positive influence (re The Crusades), people don't always agree with the particular interpretations of doctrine, and people in the U.S. don't always believe in the same doctrine. To allow religion to encroach into state matters would undermine the basic liberties under which the U.S.A. was founded. Cheers to Brad Pitt.

I'm extremely sick of Brad, Angelina and Jennifer. All of them.

Ahem. He said, by the same token that "if a group of gay married couples were telling you that you couldn't practice your religion I'd be speaking out for you too." I think the only belief he's trying to impose on anyone is the belief in freedom and acceptance, for all.It should be about freedom of choice, that's all he is saying. And I agree with him.
